You can change Apaches httpd.conf by clicking (in xampp control panel)
apache/conf/httpd.conf and adjust the entries for
DocumentRoot and the corresponding
Just Ctrl+F for “htdocs” and change the entries to your new path.
- Go to C:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf
- Open httpd.conf
- Find tag DocumentRoot “C:/xampp/htdocs”
- Edit tag to DocumentRoot “C:/xampp/htdocs/myproject/web”
Now find tag < Directory > and change it to < Directory “C:/xampp/htdocs/myproject/web” >
Restart Your Apache
You can change the port while you open your XAMP control panel, follow the steps:
- click on config net to the start button, and
httpd.conf, a text file will open
- check the file and file
- once got
- save in the the same folder.
Once done that, you will be able to start your local server.

- save it
DONE: start apache and go to the localhost

I moved my htdocs folder from C:\xampp\htdocs to D:\htdocs without editing the Apache config file (httpd.conf).
Step 1) Move
C:\xampp\htdocs folder to
Step 2) Create a symbolic link in C:\xampp\htdocs linked to D:\htdocs using mklink command.
D:\>mklink /J C:\xampp\htdocs D:\htdocs Junction created for C:\xampp\htdocs <<===>> D:\htdocs D:\>
Step 3) Done!
In case, if anyone prefers a simpler solution, especially on Linux (e.g. Ubuntu), a very easy way out is to create a symbolic link to the intended folder in the htdocs folder. For example, if I want to be able to serve files from a folder called “/home/some/projects/testserver/” and my htdocs is located in “/opt/lampp/htdocs/”. Just create a symbolic link like so:
ln -s /home/some/projects/testserver /opt/lampp/htdocs/testserver
The command for symbolic link works like so:
ln -s target source
target - The existing file/directory you would like to link TO. source - The file/folder to be created, copying the contents of the target. The LINK itself.
For more help see ln –help
Source: Create Symbolic Links in Ubuntu
And that’s done. just visit http://localhost/testserver/
In fact, you don’t even need to restart your server.
XAMP on Bitnami (which is the only option now) apache settings are in bitnami.conf
At c:\Bitnami\wampstack-XXX\apache2\conf\bitnami\ or something.
httpd.conf does not affect anything now. Smells like a Google style decoy 😉
